Transform and roll out!
This is the news that a Transformers Deck Building Game is on the way from Renegade Game Studios. Last year, Renegade Games obtained the license, with this being the first venture into it. Appearing on Board Game Geek, the game is due to come out sometime this year, and is for one to four players.
It's clear that despite the ending of the Transformers Trading Card Game, fans are still out there and now looking for a new way to merge a favourite franchise with the tabletop hobby, and this offers an interesting alternative.
You can find the description provided below:
"The Autobots are brave robot warriors hailing from the planet Cybertron. Their mission? To stop the Decepticons from enacting their evil schemes on Earth.
In Transformers Deck-Building Game, you take on the role of one of the mighty Autobots. Travel and explore the Matrix and transform between your different modes as you gain allies, find relics, and acquire technology to do battle with the Decepticons. But be warned! As your deck grows, more powerful Decepticons will rise up to challenge you.
Transformers Deck-Building Game can be played competitively or as a co-operative experience. This core set will begin your collection with everything needed to play, but the battle is far from over as playable Decepticons are on the way to expand your game."
Though no formal announcement has come from Renegade Games as yet, you can check out their BGG entry, and keep your eyes peeled for further news.
